lyrics

The essence of comedy, of fear, of death
Of joy, of sadness, of drawing a final breath
The breath beyond the final breath, the tears of joy from life regained
The future shrieks of laughter when we reminisce about the pain

The pain is nice and so am I
The one severely hurt could die
His hair looks very different today
The ladder wasn't twice as tall
He broke the bones which broke his fall
They put him back together so we'll say....

It could have killed him but it didn't so it's funny

The grill was hot and so's your mom
Apologizing yet 'cause some
enlightened fellow's burning off his face
The skateboard wasn't twice as quick
The road was just a little slick
They said when he'd escaped death's sweet embrace....

It could have killed him but it didn't so it's funny

The cold and evil cruelty-soup we suck on to survive
We taste unrealized death, and oh, it's funny we're alive!
And oh the humanity! Oh the hypocrisy! The trauma!
Delightful joys for girls and boys surviving the essence of comedy

The gun was loud and also hurt
My feelings 'cause I'm not alert
Enough to warn the people in the way
The bullet nearly missed his head
It didn't make him twice as dead
And if he ever speaks again he'll say...

It could have killed him but it didn't so it's funny
